Taking drugs



We have just said that smoking is sin; but it is sin also to take drugs, such as cocaine and heroin, and to take hallucinogens, such as LSD. The reason is the same I told you before, for our body is the temple of God and this temple is holy and we must possess it in sanctification and honor (1 Thessalonians 4:4) abstaining from all those things which are able to destroy or damage it, and drugs and hallucinogens damage the body.

Therefore, brothers, you who were formerly drug addicts, do not return to your old ways, that is, to drug addiction, for any reason; and you who have never known drug addiction, do not become drug addicts. A word about hallucinogens: not only do they destroy the body (particularly the mind), but they also put people in touch with demons, for those who take hallucinogens make astral trips during which they meet monsters and see strange things which belong to the occult world. So abstain from them.
